Churchill Quotes on Champagne

Champagne

‘A single glass of champagne imparts a feeling of exhilaration. The nerves are braced, the imagination is agreeably stirred, the wits become more nimble. A bottle produces a contrary effect. Excess causes a comatose insensibility. So it is with war, and the quality of both is best discovered by sipping. Winston Churchill, 1898, Malakand Field Force.

‘First things first. Get the champagne.’ Winston Churchill, 1931, New York.

‘I could not live without Champagne. In victory I deserve it. In defeat I need it.’ Winston Churchill, 1946
